Bigger Lift means Bigger Problems??

I am thinking about adding 4 adjustable coil spacers to my 98' TJ. My Jeep doesn't sit level with the 4'' lift on it now, and I recently added a 400lb bumer/tire carrier to the rear, so its going to sag sooner or later. The ACS add a minimum of 1 1/4'' of lift, but I would probably adjust them to 2'' give or take a little. My question is, going with total of 6'' of lift, am I going to have any problems with my drive train or 4WL kicking in/out?? I'm not sure how much lift I can go with stock drivetrain set up. I know with the larger lifts (6"+) you need a slip-yoke eleminator or something. I just want to level my Jeep out without too many complications. Thanks!
